This morning, to be exact at 8:45am, Bobi Wine's wife, Barbie Kyagulanyi revealed to her close pals what has been troubling her all these years and that was, skin bleaching or lightening. To drive the point home, Barbie used her sister Brenda.
"I have a sister, her name is Bre. In the pic, Bre is wearing a denim top dress. Bre is darker than her two sisters. Bre is comfortable in her skin. Be like Bre. Love your skin tone, be confident of your dark self. If you must bleach, whiten your dark heart and leave your beautiful dark skin alone."
Minutes later, she was joined by her hubby, Bobi Wine who had this to say: "Well said First Lady, you said what has been on my mind for so long but couldn't find the confidence to address it. This goes to my friends too."
Could this be Bobi Wine's next song project after Obululu, Dembe and other cross cutting theme songs like Kampala and another to do with cleanliness, may be not but looking at how he does his thing we will not be surprised.
"I could say much more than this but 70 percent of my friends bleach! It makes me sad that even when I openly tell them how degrading it looks, none of them takes me serious. Bleaching is a symptom of your low self esteem. Please desist from it, " Barbie concluded.
"Barbie, bleaching is actually just a symptom, we have to find the root cause which I believe as you said is low self esteem. Treat the cause not the symptom. Find out why they have low self esteem and address it..." one responded to her post.
